What’s Old Is New Again: “Hail Mary” Relief and Creative Lawyering Options That Are Back! - Recording (CLE Included)
Live Event Date: 10/28/2021
Format Length CLE Eligible
Web Seminar 90 min. Yes

With all the changes of a new administration, options and avenues for relief that had ceased existing or were significantly limited are now returning. The panelists on this intermediate seminar will discuss all the “last chance” and “Hail Mary” options to give your client a reprieve. Most of these options were not available or sparsely available over the last four years, so our panelists will focus on re-introducing these options and explaining to newer practitioners how to pursue them.

Featured Topics:

  • Humanitarian Parole Based on Medical Requests
  • Affirmatively Filed Deferred Action (No, Not DACA!)
  • Seeking Bond and Release from Detention from ICE
  • Stays of Removal
  • Prosecutorial Discretion with OPLA
